I was assigned some homework today that is to do with while loops, but I am just completely lost here. I understand what while loops are, but I don't know what to do in this assignment. This was the assignment.


Write a count controlled loop than can print "i" char
the user is supposed to input a integer and that integer is how many asterisks there is on the blade, in this case it is 5.

* *
** ** **---------------
*******
** ** **
* ** * -10 Rows high
** -blade always connects on second row of handle
**
**
**
**------------------

These are the steps he told us to do it in.
